Leave it All Behind Except Your Passions

12/20/2012

There's nothing wrong with dinner in a romantic restaurant, we have more than a few. But why not give V-Day a bit of a twist? You're on vacation, let loose. Go ahead, no one's watching, let's get started.

Jupiter Lighthouse

Love the Sun from Jupiter

Evenings are not the only part of a romantic day. Have a daytime adventure along the blue waters and warm sands around Jupiter Inlet. Imagine kayaking the nearby Wild and Scenic Loxahatchee River with the Jupiter Lighthouse as your backdrop. Take your beach blanket down to Carlin, Dubois or Jupiter Beach Park for more magnificent scenery. Have a picnic on the beach, pick up everything you need for a top-notch picnic at Whole Foods Market, located at Downtown at the Gardens in Palm Beach Gardens.

Ironwood Steak and Seafood

Golf-a-luscious and Spa-tastic

Maybe your idea of a romantic weekend is back swings and back rubs. In that case, start your PGA National Resort and Spa play date on the newly redone Fazio Course. This world-class resort is famous not only for its golf, but also for their more than 100 ways to pamper spa and salon. Indulge in tantalizing 2.5 hour couple's massage and couple's manicures and pedicures. Dinner can also be a sharing experience at the Resort's Ironwood Steak and Seafood restaurant, located conveniently onsite. After dinner, grab a drink at iBAR, the resort's sophisticated, stylish location for creative cocktails, an impressive wine list and full bar open until 1:00 a.m.

Cultural Couture

Flagler Museum

If world-class museums, cultural venues and history are where you and yours find passion, we have what you need. Start with a personally guided walking tour of the famous island of Palm Beach and learn how a desire to build created a legendary locale. Tour a testament to true love at the Flagler Museum, a grand and magnificent home built by Henry Flagler for his beloved wife, Mary. Wonder in awe at the huge glass Persian Sealife ceiling of the Norton Museum of Art created lovingly by artist Dale Chihuly. While the iconic, historic The Breakers Palm Beach has a captivating way to end an enchanting day - a contemporary Palm Beach cocktail soirée at the just opened, HMF, where classic and new meet.

Scuba diving

Water Wonders

For those who believe nothing says "I Love You" like roaring out onto the Intracoastal Waterway on a couple of jet-skis or taking an underwater dive to go face-to-face with stunning reefs and intriguing wrecks - then a trip to the Boynton Harbor Marina is in order. Back on shore, both waterside eateries Two Georges Waterfront Restaurant and Banana Boat, have fresh seafood and ambience unparalleled and spectacular. Complete your day with a handheld walk out on the jetty at Ocean Inlet Park to watch the moonrise.
